Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmail

On October 3, the Oakland City Council unanimously approved a new ordinance subjecting all local law enforcement agreements with federal partners to abide by the city’s laws and undergo civil rights and privacy reviews.

The ordinance is modeled after San Francisco’s 2011 civil rights ordinance and will be implemented by Oakland’s Privacy Advisory Commission.

A large community coalition brought forward the ordinance including CAIR, Asian Law Caucus/AAJC, Wellstone Democratic Renewal Club, Veterans for Peace, Strike Debt Bay Area, Latino Task Force, Jewish Voice for Peace Bay Area, First They Came For The Homeless, Defending Rights and Dissent, Coalition for Police Accountability, Center for Media Justice, California Sanctuary Campaign, Block by Block Organizing Network, ACLU-Norcal and Media Alliance. Thank you to all of them for their dedication.
